    Rare dark jellyfish showing up in San Diego Bay

    SAN DIEGO Scientists say a rare species of dark purple jellyfish is showing up in San Diego Bay and washing ashore on beaches.

    The black sea nettle can grow up to 3 feet across with 30-foot-long tentacles.


    Hillgarth says they sting, so boaters and beachgoers should admire them without touching.

    It's too bad they're dangerous. They're quite lovely, though.

    These weird movements of species populations is getting scary.

    LOL!!! It's an optical illusion because the diver is so far back and the jellyfish is so close. I've seen it happen on numerous pictures. (It could also be PhotoShop, of course, but I think the former is more likely.)
